Django UnchainedPulp Fiction Connection Found

He's no Kevin Smith, but Quentin Tarantino is prone to wink at his universe every now and again. Lee Donowitz (Saul Rubinek) from True Romance is the son of Inglourious Basterds' Donny "the Bear Jew" Donowitz (Eli Roth). Vic Vega (Michael Madsen) in Reservoir Dogs is the brother of Vincent Vega (John Travolta) in Pulp Fiction. Well, there's one such connection in Django Unchained, but it's so small that Tarantino himself forgot about it in the below interview. We're lucky we have Reddit for these things, because one person found the connection. Pulp Fiction's Captain Koons (Christopher Walken) is apparently a descendant of Crazy Craig Koons, a member of the Smitty Bacall gang. It seems minor, but maybe there was a line cut out of the script where Smitty Bacall praises Crazy Craig Koons's ability to keep time.
